In fact the attendance was so huge the farm stayed open an extra hour to cope with the numbers attending.

Open Farm Sunday is a nationwide initiative run by LEAF (Linking Environment And Farming) and offers the chance for young and old to meet the farmers who grow their food and care for the countryside.

Tractors took visitors out to see crops being harvested while back ‘at base’ demonstrations and videos showed how farming in the 21st century works.
